Welcome to Grosvenor Bridge Class.

We hope you have a wonderful year with us.

From Mrs Keer, Mrs Simion, Miss Thompson and Miss Evans.

Week beginning 20th July 2020

Dear Parents, Carers

We would like to thank you for your overwhelming support throughout the year, especially during the past 4 and a half months as we embarked on our home learning journey together. Thanks to your perseverance, the children have grown and developed in so many ways. We are immensely proud of their hard work and success. 

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Zoom on Wednesday:

• At 10am to say goodbye to the children

• At 2pm for the Y1 Parent Information Webinar. Check your email for a link to register to join the webinar.

We will continue to post one activity each day on Monday and Tuesday for the children who will not be able to go into school on Monday and Tuesday. There will be no further posts on Class Dojo from Wednesday onwards as Class Dojo goes into holiday mode. You are welcome to continue to access your child’s portfolio and the Class Story, to look back at their wonderfull learning over the past few months. You will receive final messages via ClassDojo on Wednesday for links to join the Zoom farewell at 10am or if you have any questions. Thereafter messages will close for the year.

We wish you and your families well for the much-earned summer break. We wish all our lovely children well for Year 1 and beyond. We look forward to seeing everyone again in September. Keep safe and take care.

Kind Regards,

Reception Team

Week Beginning 13th July 2020

Dear parents and carers

We are now in our final full week of  Reception and home learning.  It has gone incredibly fast and although we will be sad to see the children move on, it is also a very exciting time as they continue their journey into Year 1.

With this in mind our topic this week will focus on moving on, what they hope to achieve next year and a reflection on their time in Reception.

We will continue with one activity a day on Class Dojo, a selection of different activities using all the skills the children have learnt so far. Zoom lessons will also continue according to colour groups. Please check class dojo for details of your zoom lesson as the days may be subject to some changes this week.

Don’t forget to use the links below for extra ideas and have a great week.
